    Why a Team Building Event?

    Team Building

    Understanding teams and team building training. This section looks at why you should have a team building event.

    Why a Team Building Event?

    When people say they want a team building event their picture is of this perfectly working group of people. But they don't take the time to pin that picture down and really get clear what the issues are. If they did that then their team building activity would certainly help them get their team working more effectively.

    So, before you can even tackle the 'how' you need to tackle the 'why'.

    Here are some questions that will help you clarify 'why a team building event'.

    Do you want people working better together?
    Do you want to set new team goals and agreements?
    Do you need to iron out communication difficulties that have crept in?
    Do you want a jolly - to reward the team for being terrific?
    Do you simply want to get everyone's creative juices going and brainstorm new ideas?
    Do you need to set clear parameters and boundaries so everyone knows what's expected of them?
    Do you want to inject some fresh enthusiasm and energy into a group that's been working too hard and may have lost sight of the goal posts?
    Have the goals posts moved and you need to let everyone know that?
